My name is Karran Harper Royal.  I am a public school parent and citizen of  New Orleans, LA.  This blog is intended to give the reader a different perspective on education reforms in New Orleans and across the country.    I care about real education reform and I am very concerned that the current reforms in public education are not helping the children they were meant to help.  I hope that the perspective represented at Education Talk  New Orleans will help to inform your opinion of public education reforms.

“What the best and wisest parent wants for his own child, that must the community want for all of its children. Any other ideal for our schools is narrow and unlovely; acted upon it destroys our democracy.” -John Dewey
